Australia being the dry place that it is we should be thankful that we actually do get snow.
Lot's of upper level cloud getting dragged down from the NW.
Going to be wet.
It has changed though. I now locals who said regularly there were snow drifts between Cooma and Jindabyne. We used to think of a base building too....now it is a decent front or two and skiing is on. I notice yr.no looks healthy for the K during this period.
yr.no - just updated - Looking sweet all week.
and earth.null is showing increasing instability with lots of super cold air flowing out into the outer nodes.
Those numbers on yr.no add up ok.
Latest model runs suggest tomorrow will be best for the rain.
Severe Weather Warning for heavy rainfall
for people in the Mallee, Wimmera, Northern Country, North Central, North East, South West and Central forecast districts
Issued at 4:30 pm EST on Sunday 8 May 2016.
A low pressure trough will enter western Victoria early Monday morning, then will move eastwards across the State during the day.
Thunderstorms with heavy rain which may lead to FLASH FLOODING are forecast for the Northern Country, North Central, North East, South West and Central forecast districts and parts of the Mallee and Wimmera forecast districts. These storms are expected to develop over western Victoria during the morning before extending eastwards. Squally winds are also likely with the storms with gusts of 90 to 100km/h possible.
So safe to say no bricks getting laid in Canberra ?
Day in the pub
I quite like the accuracy of MetEye for sailing, not sure what its like in the mountains
IMO looking good for snow say above 1800m from Tuesday through Wednesday.
However, it warms up on Thursday, with the precipitation continuing, far chance most of it will be washed away.
Good latitude for this time of year.
We still need some heavy frosts.
Cold uppers arriving Tues, lingering thru Weds. So concur with CC on snowfalls.

About Severe Weather Warning Services
Yr.no says 10cm across the board on Wednesday. To be swiftly washed away, but will be first sig mainland snowfall for the year
Mt K and areas above 1900m are looking much better than that with little if any rain in the following days. Might be putting down the first layer for the winter season ahead. And who knows some of the more dedicated could be out there later this week/end with their rock hoppers.

Mount Hotham has recorded a gust of 113 km/h during Monday morning.
Yeah, I was referring to 'resort snow'
big swell for Cactus today by the look of it.
Was looking at that fancy wind map before and think that.
Onshore flow wouldn't be favorable.
Some of the protect points in Streaky or Fisheries might be on the pump today.
30kt + SW. eek.
Bring your paddle arms.
15 - 20 ft 6 x overhead.!!!
NO Thanks , not even back in days of olde.
Even the mid would have been pumping by looks of that map
Channel 7 graphic...
Hotham down to 1.5 and dropping. Maybe some white stuff overnight.
TTS winds are howling. If the moisture holds there are going to be solid drifts. Might even get enough in Sun Valley to stay and start building some early rock filler.
Looking at the global map for the Southern Ocean there appears to be a succession of fronts over the coming weeks?
Yeah it looks as the switch will flick
few feet forecast for the roof of Australia.
should kick off BC
Just to show i'm not full of shite
Its pretty easy to see the reason.
This cutoff has broke down that persistent ridge.... even though its decayed now...
A large anti cyclone in the west has a persistent strong NW feed on its edge. thats unusual.. usually it would ridge up and cut that moisture off.... feeding into a dose of cold (not super cold )
All discussed above and obs thread, before your post, no need to justify yourself.
Yeah, but TBH i didn't believe it...
Could get a bit soggy on Thursday, apart from the highest parts.
Big call on the first big system
yr no has 20cm of snow falling at Perisher on Wednesday that will all be washed away on Thursday.
Charts weren't so wrong a week ago
soggy is relative
Its not a mango.
The onky thing about the charts was it looked wet everywhere last week but it's relatively localised
Bom now calling 15 to 40 on Tuesday and 6 to 25 on Thursday at Perisher. That's front valley AWS at 1735m. Expect more up high?
Looking at the low degrading, where is it all coming from?
The cams will be worth having a look at tomorrow afternoon maybe.
Wot Donza wrote.
Yes I understood that, or at least I thought I did. It's just that the low now appears to be degrading and the band of moisture is heading off to the south east towards NZ. Please tell me this was expected and that the low will re-develop and deliver.
Models previously had it further South. It's still tracking with a strong Easterly vector , though slowly starting to turn South. Once back over water, should re-develop.
Tail should deliver. IMO.
